Ever since I was a kid I have always loved the story of Pete’s Dragon and I have watched the old movie several times. Once I heard there was a new one coming out I had to go see it.
For those of you who haven’t seen the new movie, I won’t spoil it for you.
You may be scratching your head about now and saying, how can this movie teach me anything about online business Scott?
Have you lost your mind? LOL. I can assure you that I haven’t lost it just yet and I’ll be explaining how the simple story of a kid and his dragon can relate to online marketing within the following article.
What Can We Learn From This Movie?
If you’re familiar with the story of Pete’s Dragon then you’ll know that there was a local woodcarver who loved to tell stories to the local children about this mysterious dragon who lived in the woods.
Of course, nobody believed him and most of the people thought he was just a crazy old man who loved to tell tales.
His very own daughter didn’t even believe him and she thought he was nuts. That was until she met Pete who said that he lived with the dragon.
Most people believe that dragons don’t exist and that this is merely a fictitious story that’s made up.
I couldn’t help but think back to when I first started out online back in 2013 and all the people who told me that I was crazy and I was wasting my time.
When you tell people that you’re building a website and making money online, you’re likely to get the same response out of them as you would if you told someone that you believed in dragons.
You see what I’m getting at here?
Don’t Let Your Friends & Family Discourage You When Getting Started Online
Personally, for me, I had always had an entrepreneur mindset and I knew that there had to be more to life than living paycheck to paycheck and barely able to make ends meet and constantly being broke all the time.
Probably one of the people who doubted me the most and told me I would never make a dime in this business was my ex-wife.
Being the type of person that I am, instead of letting this get me down and discourage me I found something positive in all of this and used this as motivation to prove her wrong.
I set out to show her that she was wrong and I eventually made her eat those words once I started making good money. lol
Practically all of my friends doubted me except for a very select few and if I would have listened to them where do you think that would have got me?
It really is hard to tell and if I had to take stab at it I would have to say either flipping burgers somewhere or working some minimum wage job.
Making money online is not only possible but one of the most rewarding careers that I’ve ever had in my whole life. If you’re willing to work hard, devote as much time as you possibly can, and you’re an action taker then this could be a very rewarding career for you.
Probably 1 of the best pieces of advice that I could give you guys when you’re first getting started is to completely ignore anyone who doubts you and thinks you’re crazy.
If you’re the type of person who loves a challenge and thrives on proving people wrong, you could always take my approach and use this as motivation to work even harder.
It’s also vital that you keep a positive outlook on this and try to surround yourself with like-minded people who will be there to support you every step of the way if you want to be successful in this business.
Building A Business Around Your Hobbies
One of the things that continues to amaze me about this business is the fact that you can build entire businesses based on your ideas and things that you happen to be passionate about.
How does this work you may ask?
This is where you would build a website around a particular topic that you’re interested in and learn how to drive traffic and earn commissions for selling other people’s products on your website.
After falling for just about every scam out there and losing thousands of dollars to these con artists, I was finally able to find the right program that helped me put all the pieces together and make sense of all this.
Not only was I able to find out what mistakes I was making and correct them, I was also able to connect with other highly successful people who are earning 4,5, and 6 figures a month and get personal help and support from them.
Going back to the story of Pete and his dragon. If you simply open your mind to the possibility that dragons could exist and stop criticizing other people for the things that they believe in, then, you are likely to accomplish a whole lot more and have a much more fruitful life than someone who decides to simply go with the flow.
In order to attain any level of success online, this will require you to be self motivated, believe in yourself, and have a good deal of confidence as well.
If you want other people to believe in you, it’s vital that you truly believe in yourself and have a good amount of self-esteem.
If you would like to change your life for the better and learn a skill that could help you make your dreams a reality then you need to get on board with The Right Training Program and take action on what you learn.
